    I'm always kind of skeptical of no-name pads. Personally I have never tried them, but I don't plan to. For all things brake related I'm sticking to name brands. Kool-stop, Galfer, even genuine OEM stuff. I think its worth the extra money for the proven name brand.

    Avid pads are usually cheaper than the aftermarket ones too. I've never had problems with the Avid stock pads being inherently bad either.....any noise comes from setup not the pad. I've even saved old glazed pads....using a flat knife-sharpening stone, rub the pad to and fro and bingo - a brake surface that looks like an unused pad (downside is you need to bed them into the rotor again)

    I've used the Compound C (Ceramic Pro) pads from bikefridge, though I got them directly from www.discobrakes.com, I think they work really well. Avid Juicy 7's. They squeal a little when wet (don't most all pads?), but only for a few seconds, becoming quiet very quickly, far quicker than stock pads.
